    The pictures of it in the water are really quite beautiful! But, from the photo's it doesn't look anywhere close to 9 meters long.
    Did you watch the video's in the link further down. Some I had seen, but others were new to me!

    agree, the pics (and vids!) are great - but yeah, 9 meters is a bit of a "stretch" (literal usage here!) ... it does, however, *appear* to be an unusually large mantle... on the larger side, yes?
